This week we have new libraries that will fill the needs of your game from its foley to its ambiences to its monsters. We have new footsteps made from sandals, slippers and wet socks, human-like monsters that growl, hiss and speak, tons of foley props like cigarettes and scratchy beards, latches and locks that are both antique and found, roaring desert trains, computers nearing the ends of their lives, busy city mornings, grasshoppers and katydids, and plenty of school supplies.
by Eiravaein Works
gives you sounds of contraptions that are looking to be open, shut, locked, and rattled. This library has 850 sounds of all the latches, locks, switches, clips, slides, clasps, gears, bolts, and ratchets you could ever need. These sounds come in all shapes and sizes with sounds of devices found in old railway yards and antique malls. You will also find many takes of each device, allowing for easily implemented sequences and randomized groups. If you have items locked up all around your game, this is definitely the library to check out.
Humanoid Creatures Vocalizations
'Humanoid Creatures Vocalizations'
by KLAP Sound
is a creepy collection of nearly 100 sounds of sub-human beasts. This library contains ten categories of sounds with breaths, gargles, growls, hisses, moans, panting, choking, snarls, phrases, and screams. You will find creatures that sound like undead zombies, demons straight from Hades, and humanoid monsters that have no problem picking their teeth with a broken tibia. Plus, these sounds were recorded at 96kHz to allow you to create even more creatures of all sizes. For a collection that covers monstrous emotions, give this library a listen.
High Desert Trains
'High Desert Trains'
by Thomas Rex Beverly
has the sounds of classic Texan trains. This library captures these monsters as they tear through the desert, rumbling past the observer and screeching to a halt when they reach their destination. These sounds were recorded at 192kHz, which offers you the freedom to stretch these sounds into new machines, monsters, and powerful droning ambiences. If you need a quick pack of train sounds with a lot of flexibility, this is the library for you!
by Firas Shehadeh
has almost two hours of city sounds from all times of the day. It features quiet dawns, busy morning streets, calm afternoons, bustling evenings, night traffic, and more. Each file is between three and a half and eleven minutes, which gives you plenty of places to find loop points. Plus, these sounds are clean and focused for peaceful and natural atmospheres. If you need sounds of a city that run throughout the day, check out this library.
Grasshoppers, Crickets and Katydids
'Grasshoppers, Crickets and Katydids'
by Songs From The Woods
has nearly 40 minutes of these various insects in their beloved habitats. It features the Northern Bush Katydid, Allard's Ground Cricket, the Red-Legged Grasshopper, the Snowy Tree Cricket, and the Sword-Bearing Conehead Katydid - which must be the badass of group. Each recording is around two and a half minutes, allowing a perfect ambient runtime for films, games and TV shows. For recordings of various buzzing, hissing and chirping breeds you didn't even know existed, give this library a listen.
Back to School
Now that we're into September, Lilesoundlibrary
picked the perfect time to release their new library 'Back to School'
. This collection has all the sounds you'd expect - pens, pencils, backpacks, blackboards, chalk and rulers - as well as staplers, scotch tape, scissors, erasers and other desk items. But this library isn't just meant for school projects! These 96kHz sounds could be stretched into evil sounding creatures or perhaps sped up into some unique UI sounds. Whether 'back to school' means late nights of procrastination or the joy of an empty household, check out this library.
by KLAP Sound
has nearly 700 sounds of the props we all find ourselves needing at the last minute. This collection contains a wide variety of recordings with sounds of writing with chalk, opening and closing car doors, impacts on wood, handling cigarettes and flasks, body movements on couches and mattresses, and much more. It even has sounds of people scratching their beards and faces, brushing their hair with their fingers, and adjusting their clothes. If your project has people in it (which is extremely likely), check out this library.
has 40 sounds of future tech that warn of impending failure and successful enemy hackers. This library features corrupt data streams, servers overloading, UI issues, abstract rhythms, and plenty more to make your protagonists sweat knowing there is nothing they can do. Each sound is over half a minute long, allowing them to ring in the background as the heroes prepare for the worst - without the short distracting loop points. For sounds of man's technological best friend gone haywire, listen to this library.
Need a quick pack of footsteps for your game? 'Foley Footsteps'
by KLAP Sound
has 224 footsteps and includes all types of surfaces, shoe types and movements. In this pack you will find boots, sneakers, sandals, slippers, flats, heels, bare feet and even wet socks. You will also find surfaces such as tile, grass, concrete, wood, dirt, carpet and rooftops, and movements like walking, running, jumping and scuffling around. For such a small price, this one is a no-brainer!
